A Gift in your Will

 

It all started with a gift in a Will – back in 1618 when Dr Thomas Edwards left £100 to the poor of Fulham. This marked the beginning of what is known today as Hammersmith United Charities and nearly 400 years later we are still here supporting local people in need.
Local need is increasing and the demand for our services is growing year on year. We have ambitious plans to grow our services to ensure that we can help meet this growing need in the future. For example, we are currently progressing plans to increase the scale of housing provision  for older people in our community. We are proud to donate £350,000 a year though our Grants Programme to help local community organisations tackle poverty, deprivation and disadvantage, but each year we have to turn down as many good funding applications as we support. We know that leaves vulnerable local people without the support they need.

Alone, we do not have the resources to meet the growing need in Hammersmith. We rely on the help of local people as much today as in 1618.

Could you consider leaving your community a gift in your will?

Or making a donation to support our work now?

For more information on how to leave a gift in your will, please see our brochure on the left or contact us here for  more information or to talk about it.

Can we rely on you?
